The Machinery and Scaffolding Rental industry mainly rents machinery and scaffolding to downstream construction and mining companies on the basis of dry hire, which is the hiring of equipment without operators. The industry also rents equipment to home owners for DIY projects, to independent contractors, to industrial clients seeking to expand their short-term capacity (e.g. generators and forklifts), and to the agricultural customers to meet seasonal demand.
Over the past five years, the industry's performance has benefited from demand resulting from the surge of investment into a broad range of infrastructure and the unprecedented investment into new mining developments.
Companies in the industry primarily supply industrial machinery, plant and equipment without operators. Equipment is hired or leased from stock purposefully held for this function.
